Natural building course gallery

The photos were taken during CPD accredited natural building courses facilitated by Peter McIntosh over the course of several years at different venues. For ease of use, we’ve created different pages for each year’s course photos which can be accessed by clicking on the gallery tab above.

The graduates from our most recent course in April 2016, at Wild Spirit Backpacker’s Lodge.

The courses are designed to teach participants how earth works, allowing them to make an appropriate choice based on materials available to them on their own site. Materials and techniques covered included, mud brick, cob, light earth, rammed earth, compressed earth brick, rock, natural plasters, foundations, walls, openings, passive solar design, basic site layout and how to test your earths.
